"Pad na jou hart" can only be described as a real "feel-good-movie".
The actors all played their parts well, and both Ivan Botha and Donnalee Roberts were comfortable in their roles. There are also quite a few other familiar faces, including Marius Weyers. He only gets a little bit of screen-time, but his acting is excellent as always.
The movie is a bit long for a romantic comedy, but it never gets boring or monotonous.
This is also another South African movie where the beautiful scenery contributes to the movie's overall greatness. We get to see many different parts of South Africa, including the beautiful Garden Route, as the characters travel from Jo'burg to Cape Town.
If you like Afrikaans movies (or a good romantic comedy), this one is a must for your DVD collection!
